The detection of precipitating antibody to Renibacterium salmoninarum in chinook salmon by counter-immunoelectrophoresis
The applicability of counter-immunoelectrophoresis (CIE) as an assay technique for the detection of precipitating antibody to R. salmoninarum (BKD) in the serum of chinook salmon ( Oncorhynchus tshawytscha ) was explored. Soluble antigen preparations of R. salmoninarum were obtained by precipitatio...
Localization of infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) in experimentally infected fish by in situ hybridization using two riboprobes of the virus
Infectious salmon anaemia virus (ISAV) is a member of the family Orthomyxoviridae. Hybridization using riboprobes of segments 6 and 8 and histology were combined in situ to demonstrate the tissues that harbour ISAV during the clinical phase of ISAV infection in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) The c...
